Hello Kitty Goodie Bags for Terras Birthday Party!

These were so much fun to make! Terra helped cut out and count the letters for the names! And helped to glue on the Hello Kitty peices too!

Hello Kitty Birthday Card...by far the most favorite thing i've ever created in my whole life!

As you all know, Terra is slightly beyond obsessed with Hello Kitty at the moment. After seeing that the slightly larger than normal birthday cards are $4-8 at Toys R US, and they are plain and flat, BLAH.....I decided to make her a giant HK Birthday card...and LOVE the way it turned out!

The card is 10 inches square, and I also made a matching envelope. (Both are made out of 12x12 cardstock, email me if you'd like instructions! It's super easy once you figure it all out!) To cover the binding on the inside i had to also put a second color of cardstock in the middle to write on.

I LOVE the way it turned out, and i hope she goes as gaga for it as i did!

7/18/09 Crop Layouts

I was a busy lil bee!

Layout 1: "2nd lost tooth"
For this LO i asked Terra to describe what she thought the Tooth Fairy would look like....got some pretty funny responses, like "She flies into the house through our peep hole in the door!". I also did a block of hidden journaling, weighted down with a heavy button so she doesn't know until she is old enough not to "believe" anymore. Little girl tried to booby trap the Tooth Fairy!

Layout 2: "Gymnastics Program" ~2 pages
I like the way this one turned out!

Layout 3: "Artiste!"
This is the layout of the photos of the latest painting shes created. Too cute.

Layout 4: "4th of July 2009" ~2 pages

Layout 5: "You wearing your heart on your sleeve"
Terras big birthmark is in the shape of a perfect heart, if you haven't seen in lately!

Layout 6: "Kindergarten Musical"
Terras class sang and acted out "Little bunny foofoo", complete with mice and a Goon!

Layout 7: "Pool with Jennifer"
Photos of Terra and Jennifer (chris' sister) playing at the pool!

Layout 8: "Swimming"

I also started a "School book" for Terra. It is 8x8, and the book is a binder bound type from Making Memories, and is covered in an adorable pink corduroy!

I plan to make a 2page layout for each school year, Preschool to 6th grade. I've already made all of the layouts in fact, so i have no excuses. All I have to do is take photos and print them out! I am taking one on the first and last day, plus field trips and special school functions, and after school activities!
